XXXTENTACION might not be with us anymore but his music lives on. The rapper emerged as a SoundCloud rapper who quickly gained immense popularity through his depression and alienation-themed music. Now, X has achieved yet another amazing landmark.

According to Chart Data, XXXTENTACION’s 2018 album ‘?’ has now spent 4 full years on the Billboard 200. It’s quite hard to stay on the chart for that long. This only goes on to prove X’s popularity and impact. That’s not all, the album “?” has more than 7.884 billion plays on Spotify.

Spotify’s most-streamed hip-hop album in history used to be Drake’s “Scorpion.” However, that distinction now belongs to the late XXXTENTACION now. The album “?” recently passed up Drizzy, according to Chart Data.

XXXTENTACION’s ‘?’ has now spent 4 full years on the Billboard 200.

XXXTENTACION was shot and killed on June 18, 2018 outside of RIVA Motorsports in Deerfield Beach, Florida. The Florida teenager, Jahseh Onfroy, had an amazing journey. He went from a SoundCloud rapper to being one of the most streamed artists on the planet.

The late rapper is surely one of the most impactful artists in hip-hop’s recent history. He accomplished a lot in such a short span of time. X’s music is credited with exploring emo, drill, trap, lo-fi, indie rock, nu metal, hip hop, R&B, and punk rock. He has paved the way for many new hip-hop artists through his musical versatility. RIP XXXTENTACION.
